Features of French Doors
A french door is a special type of entrance that has two sections. The French were inspired by Italian art and architecture in order to create the idea of double doors and windows in the 17th century. If you’re looking to provide your home with glamour and sophistication – then French doors are a fantastic choice.
French doors are composed of several panes of glass that help fill the room with natural sunlight. There are two hinges on each side of the frame that allow this door to open on both sides. The pair of doors are unique because the glass is extended throughout the length of the door, like a window design but with a handle. The strong panes of glass will increase the energy efficiency and insulation of your home.
Benefits of French Doors
French doors can transform any space to look more elegant and appealing. They will enhance the open layout of your home to increase the overall value. French doors can both open, but you can choose if you want a fixed door and one movable door. This type of exterior door is a great choice for homeowners that want to enhance the traditional appearance of their home.

Why do they call it a French door?
